Talking Stick Golf Club (South course)

4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Talking Stick Golf Club (South course): Although the North and South courses at Talking Stick may run alongside each other, its unlikely these Scottsdale siblings would be mistaken for twins! Both are located on the flattish terrain of an Indian reservation, but there the similarity ends. The open, links-like styling of the North course, is complemented by a slightly easier-going, resort course feel on the more parkland-styled South course. Small trees create good definition to many holes, as you are steered along the flattish fairways to good size greens. Water occasionally makes its presence felt, more so on the back-nine. Like the North course, the absence of any housing around the course creates a wonderfully natural setting, enhancing the wonderful mountain views seen from most parts of the course.

Talking Stick is located on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Reservation. Two different meanings are ascribed to the name "talking stick". One is that a stick was used by the local Pima tribe to record important events, such as harvests, droughts, solar eclipses and festivals. The other is that a stick was passed around at tribal meetings to the person who wanted to speak. | Talking Stick is managed and operated by Troon Golf, a world leader in upscale golf course management. | Talking Stick formerly played host to the PGA Tour Qualifying School (in 1998 and 1999).

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
